Early-Stage, Domestic Impact Investing: A Compelling Market Opportunity for Impact and Financial Return
Undercapitalized: Early-stage companies' capital needs are often too large for "Friends and Family" but too small for traditional VC firms.
Underserved: There are very few professionally-managed, early-stage funds in the impact investing space available to investors that want to drive change with their investments.
Underexplored: There are many large challenges with profitable solutions that are just now beginning to be explored.
